Drawn in part from her recent book Everything Man, this talk announces "antiphonal life" as a uniquely conceived strategy of the polymath movement artist Paul Robeson (1898-1976). His vocal labors in unanticipated places-- including those of enforced quiet like the prison--as well as his ascension in scale from raw element to mountain peak, reveals the failures of the suppressive state and the ingenuity of The People in their demand to hear and be heard.
